towards us, we expect to see the rain by 2:00, 3:00 in the afternoon getting heavier as the day wears on. w we expect earl parallel to the outer banks. just about 2:00, 3:00 tomorrow morning and as it continues up the coast to the jersey shoreline and then new england, we expect it might possibly make landfall along to nantucket where it juts out. it doesn't have to make landfall to cause major problems. it is moving forward at 18 miles per hour. that will increase the possibility of storm surge where you get most of the damage through the storm surge, but we look for heavy rains, high winds and, again, hurricane force winds extend out 90 miles from the center of the storm. so you don't have to make landfall to get major impact from this hurricane. we'll continue to monitor it and there will be an update coming up from the national hurricane center within the hour. more details for you. >> thanks very much, al. let's get over to meteorologist bill karins. i can tell you fraught talking to al earlier, those winds have picked up where he is. what are things looking like right now? >> i am
at that time. >> can you confirm that the entire building is evacuated now? >> no, i can't. >> can you tell us where the suspect is? >> no. >> still on the first floor? >> anything more specific? >> no. >> can't answer that. >> are there any injuries that you know of at this point? >> there's still no confirmed injuries. no reports of any injuries that have been brought to my attention. >> you won't tell us things basically because you're afraid that he'll hear about it and it will disturb the negotiations? >> a couple of categories as far as negotiation. some parts of this information we just don't know. some parts we don't want to release because it may affect how we're treating this situation. thank you. >> thank you. >> just listening to an update with captain starks from the silver spring police department there. as you can hear, very guarded in the information that he's willing to release, but off the top saying that they are negotiating still with this individual. tom costello is still on the ground there. tom, and you've made this point from the very beginning to be careful because thi
, savannah. this was the worst helicopter crash in about four years for u.s. troops. nine troops dead. this happened in zabul province, which is in the south-southeastern section of afghanistan. an area where the taliban controls much of the territory and where coalition forces have been stepping up their attempts to push the taliban out. we are told this crash happened about 4:00 this morning, local time. the military says that there were no reports of enemy fire. that the crash is still under investigation. now, despite the fact that there were no reports of enemy fire, the taliban has called news organizations, including a call here at nbc news in kabul, to claim responsibility for the attack. they say they shot the helicopter down. the taliban often does that, claims responsibility for things that turn out to be accidents. and indeed, most of the helicopter crashes here have turned out to be accidents. maintenance problems, the incredible amount of dust in the air. this is the deadliest year for coalition forces. after today's crash, 525 coalition forces have died this year. 351 o
30 years in prison for a crime they say they never committed. >>> great to have you with us, everybody. just weeks before the midterm elections both republicans and democrats are trying to figure out whether the tea party movement will help or hurt them. there's so much discontent over the economy and high unemployment that americans are telling us in poll after poll that the status quo just won't work any more. in the politco george washington battleground poll only 28% said the country was headed in the right direction. 63% said it was on the wrong track. a brand-new poll out today gives us insights as to how they're feeling about the tea party. chief washington correspondent nora nor norah o'donnell joins me now. tell me what it gives us as we're heading into november. >> it reflects what we've seen in our poll, a lot of americans are fed up with the direction of this country. they don't trust washington. they don't trust big institutions. and they want change. and then you see segments of the voting population that not only want change, but they are mad as hell and that
was the official hand jomp as u.s. forces stepped back into a supporting and training role. >> ending this war is not only in iraq's interest, it's in our own. the united states has paid a huge price to put the future of iraq in the hands of its people. through this remarkable chapter and the history of the united states and iraq, we have met our responsibilities. now it's time to turn the page. >> william cohen served as defense secretary under president bill clinton and is now with the cohen group. mr. secretary k-we turn the page? >> well, the page has been turned in the sense that the combat mission is over, combat will continue. it's still a very volatile, dangerous region, and we're going to don't see more assaults launched against the iraqi people, against the 50,000 soldiers who remain there. the real question for me is what's going happen to the remaining 50,000, how will they be down sized in the coming year. what struck me about last night's speech was that the president talked about conditionality on the ground in afghanistan, in other words the reductions that are coming next summ
especially against the homeland. senator joe lieberman joins us now. senator, thanks so much. what is the level of threat to the homeland as it was described by janet napolitano? what are your concerns and how well do you think they're doing to guard against it? >> right, good to be with you again. >> you, too. >> this was our third annual hearing on the evolving nature of the terrorist threat o our homeland, and what we're doing about it and we look back at the year past, it's clear from all the information we have that the pace of attacks against our homeland has increased that more of the attacks are coming from organizations that are loosely connected to al qaeda but are not al qaeda and that more and more american citizens are part of those attacks, so that the war with the islamic extremists and terrorists that is global is being brought by our enemy much more here at home and it's a warning to the american people, i'd say the agencies before us, homeland security, fbi, national counterterrorism center, and all of the people who work for them are doing an extraordinarily good
. but they do extend, big waves for many miles. the eye of the storm is disappearing on us. we could be undergoing an eyewall replacement cycle and that may not have time to fully wind back up. now the waves are probably the biggest story with this storm. the beach erosion is going to be incredible. we have 14-foot waves off of hatteras, 13-foot waves off of wilmington. the wave action is going to be incredible going all the way up the east coast to cape cod during the day tomorrow. hurricane warnings cape cod, hurricane warnings from virginia beach southward to just outside of jacksonville, north carolina near camp lejeune. as far as our commuter models go, everything is taking it offshore at this point. the only close call is out there at nantucket, martha's vineyard, chatam. it should be a category 3 and then a category 2 by the time it's south of new england, weakening to a category 1 as it impacts either down east maine, they're probably going to get hit good saturday morning. the tropical storm force winds, the worst where stephanie is located, and then as everyone drives to wo

was carrying three viable embryos. one more than their health insurance was willing to cover. >> they called us, you know, and said, well, congratulations on your pregnancy and we'll be happy to buy in the insurance once you reduce, let us know when you reduce the twins. we're like, what? >> reporter: reduction means terminating one of the embryos in utero. staggering moral dilemma. >> we can't proceed without insurance, this could destroy us. i tell you, man, i tried for four years to get a heartbeat in that ultrasound, you finally realize that this is a life. i mean, i changed my whole point of view about abortion, about everything. >> reporter: luckily, it was a decision they didn't have to make. christie got them on her personal health care plan which covers multiple births. when it came time to deliver by cesarean section, scotch and todd were at the hospital alongside christie and her husband eric. >> they said, we're starting in five minutes. it was boom! we got the first one. what? you know, it was -- and then it was 9:40, 9:41, 9:42. bam, bam, bam. >> while you're processing your first
,000 bail. we don't know if money was paid, who paid it. we think one of the gulf nations, oman. the u.s. government says it did not. and if it was paid if it was 500,000 or less. >> absolutely. we do have information from the swiss embassy who represents u.s. interests here that the om omani people were instrumental in securing her release. all indications are they did help with the bail. >> it's an amazing drama, and our focus does remain on josh and shane and the fact they are still in prison and, in fact, the prosecutor said today that they will have to stay in july for two more months. this is the first time we had an end date. it doesn't seem they will be released immediately. >> it's not such an ominous sign, because it's the first time they put a time frame on this, which could be a positive signal. >> thank you, ali arouzi, we'll have much more of your reporting on msnba and throughout the day and evening. now joining us is nicholas burns, former undersecretary of state who entered a lot of negotiations behind the scenes with the iranians over the years on issues as large as the
in his demands on the internet that humans are not necessary. we've got with us, derek bartlett, a former s.w.a.t. team member and sniper team member. hopefully the information is correct. everyone is out of the building. this is not a hostage situation. if that is the case, you have an individual, he's armed, he may have explosives. how the s.w.a.t. team who's in contact with him hopefully get him out of there safely and end this? >> well, if things are where they are right now, hopefully you contain him, you contact him, you talk to him. and you give him a chance to air whatever grievance he has and hopefully give up peacefully without injuring anyone in the building or s.w.a.t. officers or himself. obviously the goal is to get everyone out alive. >> absolutely. and if all of the individuals in that building are out, he's in there alone, he's got the microphone, if you will, in that he's in contact with authorities. and at this point, do they simply listen? and the urgency of getting innocent people out of there, it doesn't seem to be the case. . >> we're going to try to talk to him and
on colbert. how about that? >> good morning. on the set with us this thursday morning, national political correspondent for new york magazine john heilemann. >> hi. >> who is the author of "game change." let me just say he feels like talking this morning. >> he does. >> okay? and then we have got msnbc political analyst harold ford jr. who is the author of owner more daves than goliaths." you had a party last night. >> look at the flowers harold brought. >> it was two nights ago. those are the ones from digger. >> those are from a grave. that's right. did you ever try that? >> huh-uh. >> what digger does? he takes flowers off of graves and gives them to girls. >> my family is in the funeral business. we would call that bad form. >> maybe just a tad bit. >> that's how he got dates in college. he said he would get flowers from the funeralhome. >> okay. it's not right. >> bless his hard. >> also with us in washington msnbc political analyst pat buchanan. >> patrick! >> good morning. >> happy fall. how are you doing? >> doing just fine. >> the pat is back. >> the pat is back. >> i've missed h
caught in this situation, that the immediate threat, this is the way it appears to us based on the facts we have, that the immediate threat to the people who work inside johns hopkins nelson building, that threat is now not a problem. so clint, we're keeping our eye on the situation. we'll keep our viewers up to date if we get more information that makes it seem like it's an ongoing problem there. thank you for your help, as well. >> okay, contessa. >>> the fight in congress over your money is now reaching fevered pitch. democrats and republicans have put up their dukes over middle-class tax cuts. and both sides are using that as ammunition for election day. the president called on congress once again to extend a tax cut for the middle class. but republicans want to extend the bush tax cuts for everyone. including the super wealthy. >> that this is not the time to increase taxes on anyone. >> vice president biden says the white house won't back down on this fight, either. biden says the tax money won't matter to people making millions of dollars. but for the middle-class, it could mean t
. he didn't use a word bullying but it was a message about that conduct. saying when your friends are doing well, don't be jealous of them, be proud of them. watch what they're doing and maybe you can learn something, too. so it's those kinds of sentiments we heard from the president today. should mention the president has been pushing hard on education reforms. his race to the top initiative, a competition for schools for federal funding that makes certain reforms. there's an election here in washington, d.c. today that a lot of people will be watching closely. mayor adrian fenty in a tough re-election battle. a lot of observers in local politics thinks he may not prevail. he hired the chancellor of washington schools. somebody the president and education secretary appointed to as somebody who is good on the issues of reform. we'll see if mayor fenty and michelle reid keep their jobs after today. >> savannah guthrie live at the white house. thank you. >>> an update on american sarah shourd. she's out of the iranian prison and speaking now for the very first time. >> i want to rea
, for example where we're staying, they told us they have had zero cancellations so far, so maybe what jeff was saying, people plunk their money down and they're hoping it passes through quickly and they can enjoy the rest of the labor day weekend. but so far we have not heard of any cancellations here. >> it looks like a beautiful day there, nbc's mike tiabbi in new jersey. we're going to keep you updated on hurricane earl. i'm going to be talking to the governor of north carolina as that state prepares for impact. >>> the platform of an oil rig exploded just a short time ago. right now the u.s. coast guard is investigating the cause of that explosion, 14 people were reportedly on the rig. they were all rescued in the water, only one person was injured. anne thompson joins us live. when we heard this, it short of caught my breath, oh, no not another one. but this may not be too bad, correct? >> this is very different from the deepwater horizon oil rig explosion that happened back on april 20th that killed 11 people and of course sparked a spill that has soiled the gulf for much of this sum
reports are that the first suspect was using an automatic weapon. >> yeah, that initial report, thomas, now, again, we don't have that from law enforcement. so t could be anywhere from what you and i know to be a semiautomatic pistol all the way up to something like an automatic rifle, for example, an ak-47. we just don't know right now. what we do know is that this first individual, evidentally was making some kind of statement first by firing these rounds and, unfortunately, we said he fired them in the area, didn't shoot at anyone in particular but he turned the weapon on himself and killed himself. this second person he was allegedly seen with was that a friend or just another student or could that be another gunman? well, on that campus they just can't take the chance. right now you have this major search going on and you've got 50,000 students plus faculty and staff either hunkered down, locking themselves in place or being told to stay away from campus until this is resolved. >> clint, we'll ask you to stick with us throughout the hour as we get more information on this breaking
england. the outer banks, they see a ton of storms. huge storms all the time. the trees and buildings used to it. eastern new england, the leaves are still on the trees and may do more damage out there on the cape. waiting for tonight to see how that plays out. radar, of the storm, ron in the last rain band from the storm and probably in sunshine in an hour or two. winds in delaware and maryland, no big deal. wildwood to atlantic city, gusting 20 to 30 miles per hour. so really the mid-atlantic not an issue. as the storm heads northwards, notice cape cod far to the east there. that's why it's going to see the stronger winds. rain showers moving up into new england and long island. you have to be out there on the end of long island to be hit by the storm. as far as the stormwise, a different view. hurricane warnings for cape cod. large waves are now arriving and that forecast path brings the storm closest to eastern new england right around 10:00 p.m. tonight for the reporters blowing in the breeze out there. i think we have escaped this one. it is underachieved. >> all right. bill karins,
. the weather channel's jim cantore is there for us. jim, good morning. >> lester, good morning. yeah, the national weather service here, the bermuda weather service, says it's called to prepare for a direct hit. the center expected to come within 10 miles of bermud and with 100 mile wide hurcane force winds, a direct hit is unavailable in through here. you can already see the wave action behind me crashing into the rock cliffs throu here. but they're preparing residents. that's the key, to take a major hit. something they haven't seen since fabian here. they're saying we're going to have roof damage, it's going to be widespread. we're going to have tree and power line damage. the royal navy is on standby. the big question is when are they going to b able to get in here? is it going to be monday afternoon? because it looks like conditions are going to be bad for 20, 30, 40 hours where no one will be able to leave their homes and no one will beut on the road. cruise ships plan to park here? no way. they're not even coming in. this certainly looks like it's going to be a very, very bad
and mika have one more day off. heading into the weekend, luckily, chris jansing is here to save us. >> as good as you get? sorry about that! >> we have a great panel with us. andrew ross sorkin. mike crowley is here from "time" magazine and joining us political reporter bob costa. aever also from washington, d.c., sam stein. the average age on the set right now, 17 years old. >> they asked where are the grown-ups. i'm it. >> we have a lot to talk about this morning but the headline, chris, hurricane earl. >> what a mess is out out there. hurricane earl is racing up the east coast after lashing eastern north carolina with severe rain and powerful winds this morning. for more on how the northeast is preparing for the storm we turn to the weather channel's julie martin who is in ocean city, maryland. good morning. >> good morning, chris. yeah, we're next here at ocean city, m.d. i don't know if you've seen the video from cape hatteras but they are getting battered pretty good down there. and expecting more of the same heading this way to mid to late morning in ocean city. i want to sh
by this storm as it passed through here overnight where or when or while many of us slept. >> did you call your college-age son in halifax to get a weather update? >> no, i'm going to give him a shout. like we discussed earlier, he is of college age. there really is no point me calling him at this time of morning because i'm not going to get anything that makes sense out of him anyway. i did talk to actually the canadian national weather service, essentially they've been saying to people, look, before you venture out, take a look out the window at the weather. that's their idea of a warning tlup because they get all kinds of storms and they're very used to it up there. what the heck? they're hearty canadians up there. >> pretty good advice any way you look at it. we'll get more from you later kevin. >> see you, earl. >> see yeah. >>> we have the latest on where tropical storm earl is headed. for that we go to meteorologist bill karins. good morning to you. >> good saturday morning to you. earl just brushed nantucket passing safely about 100 miles off the coast. that meant only winds around 40 t
they wanted us to proceed. they asked us to keep him on the phone and keep him talking. the lunch hours was just ending when the gunman walk under to the discovery channel headquarters just outside of washington waving a handgun and ordering everyone in the lobby to stay still. we now know the suspect was james jay lee whose long list of demands included a change in discovery channel programming. as word of the hostage situation spread, nbc news producer called discovery channel general number. suddenly lee himself picked up the phone. >> no one has been shot. >> do you have a gun? >> i have a gun and i have a bomb. i have several bombs strapped to my body ready to go off. i have a device that if i drop it, if i drop it i'll explode. >> reporter: decided against reporting the conversation until the situation was over. while lee held three hostages at gunpoint most of the building's 1,900 employees were told to evacuate and did. including all the children in a day care center on the first floor. >> someone came to me, came to me and said, don't go into the lobby. there's some action goin
power. let's head to new jersey where mike tiabbi is standing by for us. what's the latest out there? >> reporter: the latest is that it looks like a nice kind of oily weather, but late afternoon. near miss, glancing blow, dodging a bullet, any of them work for the jersey shore, because while they were prepared for the worst, and a category 4 hurricane would have been the worst, it certainly wasn't the worse. it didn't even deliver the tropical storm winds you were talking about, it was about 40 miles an hour. it's just about high tide right now, as you look behind me, you can see the surge of the surf coming up on the beach further than it normally does, you see people walking out there, but there's really even been very little rain here, very little flooding obviously with very little rain and no worries at this point that the rain would cause any damage whatsoever. and some people have been ignoring those warnings about rip currents, the coast guard has just suspended the search for one man who disappeared off delmar just a little while ago and they recover the body of a man who d
things to recede and that is just huge, huge news for this area. still, though, some problems on u.s. 17. it is closed down in brunswick county north and south people trying to get to and from ard time doing so. power outages up now to 14,000 between north and south carolina and reports of an injury near the queens lake area as a large tree has fallen on a car. we're going to see another wave of rain this afternoon and some of it will be accompanied by winds that could gust to 50 miles per hour and that's the kind of wind, especially for the saturated soils that will take down these trees and have these power outages continuing to increase. by tomorrow we hope to have the sun back for you, something that you deserve after historic rain here in southern south carolina. back to you. >> let's go back to bill karins because he was following the track of this storm and the impact it was having. i woke up early and saw on the local news the traffic mrb prob it is causing. >> now the problems from d.c. up to new york. that is the area of concern, especially around baltimore add this time. you c
state. happy labor day weekend, it will be for north carolina. >> ron mott joins us from kill devil hills, ron, how is it looking out there. >> reporter: from a category 4 to a category 1. i can see just to our south here that there are some blue skies headed our way, and by about 3:00 or 4:00 eastern time, we're expected to be mostly sunny with temperatures rising rapidly back into the 90s here, it's going to be a great weather weekend for the labor day holiday. in fact the evacuation orders that have been put into effect have been lifted here in dare county, so people who have gone just inland will come back here to finish up their holiday weekends. this is how you want to van aftermath of a storm. this is one of the few storms i have ever covered that you can't see a single tree what was felled by the storm winds. about 2:00 or 3:00 this morning, the wind was whipping up pretty good. it's just one mile an hour below hurricane status. >> so, ron, up further north from where you are, new jersey has ordered swimmers out of the water, are you seeing anybody who's daring to get near t
no ray is can city for this weekend an the manager told us no cancellations that is the same sort of thing we have heard from cape may to ocean and mon mouth counties. the economic impact not likely to happen. today, as julie suggested, there is going to be a period of to uncertainty and discomfort in the mid-atlantic states. those winds that are going to be tropical storm-force, 40 miles an hour or so, will likely hit here, the wing span of the storm is wide enough 150 miles, feel the winds here. no hurricane-force winds, even though they have been an emergency disaster declaration meaning they can close roads and open emergency shelters, not likely to be called in, no major flooding suggested, not even all that much rain, the rain did just start about ten minutes ago just in time for this report. so going to get some effects from the storm but looks like new jersey's streak, not having a landfalling hurricane for 111 years will continue along the real jersey shore. kris? >> you talk about the 40-mile-an-hour winds, the obvious question is that strong enough to blow snooki over?
downgraded to a category 1 storm. nbc's michelle franzen joins us now live from chatham, massachusetts. what is the scene like there? >> certainly, the preparation the last two days, preparing for the worst what could have been a direct hit, shaping up to be a direct hit from hurricane earl here on cape cod that is not shaping up to be the case at this hour. however, still a significant storm, as bill just mentioned a got category 1 significant winds and nantucketed expected to still take the brunt of hurricane earl. right now though, very calm, in the bay, a protected area of chatham here. there are still some people out on the beach here, taking stock of this calm weather before the storm rolls n we have had had a shower just a short time ago of the outer bands of this storm but certainly a lot of people were preparing, boarding up their houses, moving boats to safer areas and also just stocking up. >> just got some water and mostly dry goods just in case refridge rater is down. >>> it is chaos, utter, utter kay, i don't we were just in there standing in line for literally 20 minutes. peop
